House of Fast Fashun
Fast Fashun is a queer art collective from Melbourne, focused on the climate emergency. The collective uses art therapy, improvisational theatre, and visual art making to create durational interactive installations where audiences come face-to-face with the waste produced by the fast fashion industry.
Fast Fashun has received recognition from the 2021 Green Room Awards for Contemporary and Experimental Performance and was a finalist in the Midsumma Australia Post Art Award in 2022. The collective is available to be programmed within festivals and events. Projects can be tailored to suit different scale events and age groups.
The collective comprises Tenfingerz, Famous Artist Sebastian Berto, Luna Aquatica, and Sarah Seahorse. The artists have been collaborating on projects for the past decade, using their combined skillset to create art that is a tool for social change.
Sebastian Berto, a graphic designer, illustrator, performer, and art-therapist with a BA in Animation and Interactive Media, has facilitated interactive art spaces at the NGV. Tenfingerz, a multi-disciplinary artist and creative producer, creates unique live-art experiences that invite audience engagement through long-form immersive work, satire, and writing.
Luna Aquatica and Sarah Seahorse create fantastical displays of wearable art, large-scale soft fabrication, body puppetry, and provocative performance, using recycled media and found objects. They are two-time award winners at the international World of Wearable Art Awards and hold degrees in Youth work and Community Development, Community Theatre and Costume Design, with vast experience in community art making and the costume and theatre industries.
The collective’s work has been described as ‘a mad, technicolour, subversive and enlightened spectacle that Leigh Bowery would have been proud of’. Fast Fashun’s unique approach to addressing the impact of fast fashion and empowering audience’s creativity is a testament to the power of art in effecting social change.
